Patty, Kalob, and Justice were over for dinner. While her, Mom, Dad, and I were at the table, Mom and Patty got into a discussion about how old they were when they had their first kids. Mom said that since Kalob is "a big boy now" (he's not even two yet) and Justice won't be a baby much longer (she's 6 months, there's still plenty of time), Mom needs another grandbaby to cuddle. She told Justice that her mother should have another one. Patty gave Mom a very dirty look (she doesn't want another baby for a few years at least). I'm not sure if anyone suggested that Lindsey might have the next one, but since Linds wasn't there, I was the next obvious target. Mom and Patty actually said that my biological clock was ticking. At the dinner table. With my father sitting right there. I said it wasn't. They insisted it was. I said, "If that's true, then I can't hear it."

The fucking nerve! At that point, I decided to let the remarks slide, but I did tell Mom this morning that I didn't appreciate what they had said. She apologized, but she didn't sound very sincere. She apologized again a few minutes later, sounding more contrite, but she also said that it wouldn't happen again.

Yeah, right.

You know, I need a drama llama icon for times like this.

I'm sorry, but that was fucking jaw-dropping. You really have to get the hell out of that house, Tara.

It was bad, but it wasn't as bad as when both my parents said I was getting old, when I was only 25 at the time.

At this point, I'm convinced that when (not if) I leave, I'll still get this shit whenever I come home.

Yes, but at least you won't have to put up with it constantly.

Unless Mom decides to nag over the phone.

Yeah, then you do what I do. "I'm late mom, gotta go!"

I'll have to remember that. :-)

Does your mother ask you about grandkids?

Only every time we speak.

She's finally laying off. She realized that I probably shouldn't have children.

oh yes, i totally understand that one. My mom has started asking for a grandbaby almost everytime I'm with her. Or at least dropping hints. Ugh.

You know, I have the perfect solution for us -- I saw a t-shirt that says "You mean to tell me my grandchild is a cat?" I think there are also ones for dogs.

I found "My grandchild is a dog" t-shirts, mugs, and pillows.

Skip the doll and get her a miniature dog. That way it will always be small and cuddly. Patty can help name it.

"Dear Mom, enjoy your new cuddly puppy. His name is Poochiekins Shish Liberty Litchenstein."

I'm more concerned about what she'd CALL the baby.

Last I'd heard, she's going with Aidan (sp) Doyle Williamson if she has another boy.

To be fair to Patty (not that I particularly want to), Doyle is Mark's middle name.

however Doyle is your mother's maiden name as well, since i have my father's name for Riles, Bob wants his family in there as well!

You could always name him Conner Francis. :-)

except that Bob wants doyle and that's what he's sticking to. I don't like it personally i wanted Conner Ashton. But he wants Doyle, and Francis is definatly a no go.
